Three Things: Success for first and last :: USCHO.com Blogs :: Atlantic Hockey Blog :: U.S. College Hockey Online

Bookends The first and last place teams recorded sweeps this past weekend in Atlantic Hockey play. Robert Morris swept Sacred Heart by identical scores of 2-1, while Niagara took all four points from American International, 2-0 and 4-3. The rest (with the exception of Canisius, which was idle) had to settle from anywhere from one to three points. As a result, there was not a lot of movement in the standings with just three weekends…

After scoring an offensive breakout with seven goals against Connecticut on Tuesday, I don’t…

Three Things: Sweeps for the old guard :: USCHO.com Blogs :: Atlantic Hockey Blog :: U.S. College Hockey Online

Sweeps for the old guard When Air Force and Rochester Institute of Technology joined Atlantic Hockey in 2006, they immediately dominated, posting a combined five regular season titles and six tournament championships in six years. And in this new age of parity where sweeps are rare, it was the old guard that came away with four points this past weekend. Air Force recorded a home sweep of Niagara (3-0 and 3-1), and RIT wrestled four…

That’s kind of a trump card I can play every week. Air Force sweeps. Chris: Niagara’s been outshooting its opponents with not much to show for it,…

Canisius wins at home on Thursday.…

Three things: A rare set of sweeps in Atlantic Hockey :: USCHO.com Blogs :: Atlantic Hockey Blog :: U.S. College Hockey Online

A rare set of sweeps Weekend sweeps have been hard to come by in Atlantic Hockey, as evidenced by the logjam in the standings. “Sweep and you move up; get swept and you move down,” said Rochester Institute of Technology coach Wayne Wilson. “Split and it’s the status quo.” This weekend saw three teams manage the feat of taking all four points: Robert Morris swept Bentley 5-1 and 5-0 to move back into first place.…

I think they know what’s at stake, and that means they’re going into this weekend with…

It’s turned around in a big way, with Army winning three of their last…

Three things: Going streaking :: USCHO.com Blogs :: Atlantic Hockey Blog :: U.S. College Hockey Online

Streaky Without peeking, which two teams have the longest unbeaten streaks in Atlantic Hockey? One is pretty easy: Holy Cross swept Mercyhurst in convincing fashion this past weekend, 5-4 and 7-3. The Crusaders never trailed on the weekend opening 3-0 and 5-0 leads on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Holy Cross, which got goals from 10 different players, has won five games in a row and moved into sole possession of second place in the standings,…

Canisius has won only once since Halloween, and Air Force is 3-1-1 in their last five games. Couple that with a trip way out west, and I’m calling for the Falcons. Air Force sweeps. Chris:Canisius is one of the…

But since we don’t take ties in this pick ’em, I’m going to take RMU in a sweep. Chris: The Black Knights…
